ACG exhibits composites technology at Automotive Interiors Expo

Launched this year, Automotive Interiors Expo takes place in Stuttgart, Germany, on 22-24 June. The event is designed to provide the automotive design, development, engineering and manufacturing community with an international exhibition for car and truck interiors.

ACG supplies a range of prepregs for the automotive industry. On Stand 5147 in Hall 5 ACG will demonstrate a range of structural, body panel, high quality aesthetic finishes and tooling solutions. Exhibits will include:

  • A door module for Delta Motorsport’s E-4 Coupe. Manufactured by KS Composites, this exhibit combines ACG’s BPS240 body panel for the outer shell with ACG’s DForm® Deformable Composite System for the inner structural element of the door. DForm, a long fibre moulding system offering rapid processing and no compromise in structural performance, is targeted at the medium/high volume automotive market.
  • A range of cosmetic and structural parts manufactured by Carbotech Composites GmbH in Salzburg, Austria, and Akrapovic Manufacturing in Slovenia. 

ACG’s prepreg systems use a range of resins combined with woven, stitched and unidirectional fibre formats. To meet the exacting requirements of the automotive interiors industry, ACG has developed a Special Visual Quality (SVQ) fabric specification to maximise the aesthetic impact of carbon fibre finishes.
